Webster University

Webster Athletic Department

January - May 2021 • Webster Groves, MO

What I liked

I liked the camaraderie I had with the fellow interns and the laid back environment of the internship. Being able to commentate games as a college student was one of the most fun experiences throughout my four years with the University.

What I wish was different

I wish the season had been more spread out. Having eight weeks of games nearly everyday became very stressful at times, although the work was very rewarding to complete.

Advice

I suggest to other students to be willing to try everything you can during the internship, because it won't last forever. Try things you wouldn't be comfortable with, such as PA announcing, or writing stories just to get the experience.

What I liked

I loved the students most of all! They were well-behaved and appreciated the help! Also, they made summer even more fun. The teacher that I worked with was very kind, humorous and helpful. When we weren't working with students, she was giving us advice and telling us about her life.

Advice

My best piece of advice is to be flexible!
